Stonehill College is a Catholic liberal arts college in Easton, Massachusetts, founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1948. The college is primarily residential, with 2400 students living and learning on Stonehill’s beautiful 384-acre campus. Through its curriculum of liberal arts, sciences, and pre-professional programs, the college provides a remarkable educational program that fosters critical thinking, free inquiry, and the interchange of ideas.


Stonehill College prioritizes its commitment to sustainability. As a significant environmental advocate, it uses resources responsibly and makes thorough and sincere efforts to drive a cleaner, greener, and healthier environment. Transitioning to a renewable energy source was part of their efforts to further foster sustainability and environmental health.


Their project was a result of years of thorough due diligence on solar implementation. Their journey with solar energy started with a couple of small rooftop projects and eventually incorporated large-scale solar fields and carports.


A 40% reduction in electricity costs

With the addition of the new solar canopies, Stonehill College increased the total solar energy production to cover over 40% of the campus’ annual electrical usage while leveraging additional financial benefits and a long-term hedge against rising energy costs.
